Palermo Viejo

Tres de Febrero Park


Avenida Adolfo Berro, Between Avenida Sarmiento and Avenida Casares,
Buenos Aires,


Built in 1914 (and temporarily closed until December 2008), this beautiful park—with its Rosedal rose garden and a delicate white wooden bridge crossing a figure-eight lake—serves as ground zero for sun-loving Argentines on weekend strolls. It’s the perfect location for people-watching, whether from a rented pedal boat, the mile-long running track that circles the garden, or the small but lovely Museo Sívori art museum ( In the warmer months, the park often hosts free weekend concerts.


Insider Tip: As beautiful as it is by day, it’s best to avoid the park after dark, when it becomes a gathering point for the city’s transvestite prostitutes.
